Epica...hehe

thats, like, almost a pun...kinda.....awesome band though(really)

A lot of goth type metal/rock has that effect. Its all the extra stringed instruments they add to the mix. Apocalyptica's music is very epic sounding (the Reflections album especially).

Sigur Ros are ace

Muse anyone?


Seconded

Hope Of The States were the most epic band i ever heard, they have a great mix of strings, tonnes of guitar parts and stuff like that that just makes everything sound so full.

Oh and The Smashing Pumpkins and Radiohead are very epic too at times
